A heat exchanger is a vessel that transfers heat energy from one process stream to another. A common physical configuration for heat exchangers is a shell and tube exchanger, where a bundle of tubes sits inside a shell. There is no mixing of fluid between the shell and the tubes.
As motive force of processes, heat must be transferred from one fluid to other, task
that is performed by means of heat exchangers. From this point of view, heat
exchangers represent an important element of thermal facilities that has substantially
contributed to technical development of the society. Today it is impossible to imagine
any branch of process engineering and energy technology without involvement of heat
exchangers. Advanced models of these apparatus were proposed in the middle of the
18th century, while theoretical backgrounds have been completed a century later....
The theoretical analysis and modeling of heat and mass transfer rates produced in
evaporation and condensation processes are significant issues in a design of wide
range of industrial processes and devices. This book introduces advanced processes
and modeling of evaporation, boiling, water vapor condensation, cooling, heat
transfer, heat exchanger, fluid dynamic simulations, fluid flow, and gas flow to the
The heat transfer and analysis on heat pipe and exchanger, and thermal stress are

The Evinox ModuSat satellite heating system has
been designed to provide apartments and communal
housing developments with independent fast recovery
hot water and high efficiency heating. With a large
range of models available, the system suits a variety
of applications, from single occupancy apartments
to groups of family homes.
Consisting of a fast recovery hot water tank or high
capacity heat exchanger, with either a hydraulic
header or plate heat exchanger, pump and mixing
valve set for the heating the ModuSat offers a total
Chapter 5 (Part 2) - Mass and energy analysis of control volumes. The objectives of this chapter are to: Solve energy balance problems for common steady-flow devices such as nozzles, compressors, turbines, throttling valves, mixers, heaters, and heat exchangers; apply the energy balance to general unsteady-flow processes with particular emphasis on the uniform-flow process as the model for commonly encountered charging and discharging processes.
